Our PGA Professionals

Nigel Pearce - Head PGA Professional

I have been the Head Professional at Sleaford Golf Club since September 2006 having moved down from Sheffield in 2002 to be the Assistant Professional. I attained my PGA Qualification in 1999 whilst working at Howley Hall Golf Club in Leeds.  I am a fully qualified PGA Rules Referee as well as a trained Powakaddy repair agent.  I have also attained the Golf Club Management certificate in 2015.  I  regularly compete in local and national Pro AM tournaments and enjoyed my career highlight in 2014 when I competed in the Lombard PGA National Pro Am Final at Gleneagles where I managed to finish in 5th place.  I am also a passionate coach who has the knowledge and experience to teach beginners, right the way through to players who have been on the European Tour.  Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than when my pupils achieve their goals.

James Beinleich - PGA Professional & Shop Manager

I joined Sleaford Golf Club as the Assistant Professional in April 2015 having started my career in the golf industry six years previously.  I successfully completed the PGA Training Programme and attained PGA membership which is my greatest golfing achievement to date!  I have a strong passion for golf coaching and helping others achieve their goals, whether it be to complete your first round of golf or win a club competition.  Completing the PGA training has given me the knowledge to coach any level of golfer from beginner to highly skilled. I regularly compete in Lincolnshire Pro Am tournaments enjoying some successful results, and will look  to keep developing myself as a player as well as others.

Oliver Harrod - Trainee assistant PGA Professional

I first started my qualification in September 2018. It is a three year foundation degree, with an option of doing an extra year to achieve the full degree status. This will increase all my opportunities for my future golfing career. I will also be able start taking lessons for members and visitors. So feel free to get in touch.
My golfing background is that I’ve been a member at Sleaford all my life (since the age of 8). My first golf lesson was actually from Nigel Pearce who is now the Director of Golf. I went on to play for all the county teams (U14- Men’s 1st Team). I also have represented England Schools vs Scotland at Southport and Ainsdale Golf Club. Recently I’ve just completed the AASE East Midlands golf qualification through Soulihull College, this is a great achievement of mine. It gave me an insight of what a professional golfer works on, mentally and physically to maintain their highest quality of performance.
